Bear One Another’s Burden

Bible Reading Galatians 6: 1-5

For every man shall bear his own burden. Galatians 6:5

When you consider verses 2 and 5 you may say they are contradictory. No, they are referring to different situations. In the first instance, when the Bible says Bear ye one another’s burden, it’s referring to how you deal with a weak brother or sister. That brother might be tempted by the devil and fell into sin. Paul says we should restore such one in the spirit of meekness and love. God does not want anyone to fall into sin, but if he or she falls, such one should be handled with grace so that he will not totally go away from God. On the other hand when Paul was referring to “every man shall bear his own burden” he was referring to the fact that you should not put your responsibly on someone else. There are people who run away from a small local church because everyone wants to ask him for money, borrow money. This has been a heavy burden on such people, and they will choose to leave that church to a bigger one because they are fed up. Never put your burden on others. Bear your own burden. Paul said “from henceforth let no man trouble me”.
